Thomas van Mourik, Chief Executive Officer of Culina Group Limited commented: “We are acquiring some excellent contracts, facilities and
people,This significantly expands our ambient network and will enable us to drive through synergies and efficiencies that will benefit all our existing customers and allow us to offer an even better service.
Culina and Cert Octavian have previously developed strong links through shared facilities at Dudley and Rotherham. These operations now become fully part of Culina’s network and are joined by Cert Octavian warehouses at Hoddesdon, Lutterworth and Middleton.
In the coming weeks Culina will finalise the details of the acquisition and commence the implementation of its expanded network. The primary aim is to ensure that all current and prospective customers continue to benefit from market-leading levels of service.
“This announcement is further evidence of our commitment to double the size of the business in the next five years,” says Thomas van Mourik. “We will be looking for similar opportunities that will allow us to add value for food and drink customers through the innovation and competitive supply chain solutions that set us apart.”
